Cup O' Joe for St. Patrick's Day…Irish Coffee Scrub

We are making a few
Irish Coffees to hand out on St. Patrick's Day...

Irish Coffee Body Scrub!

Take one cup of ground coffee 

3 Tablespoons Light Olive Oil 
(we used light Olive Oil because it has less scent)

a few drops of Mint Extract
and mix it all together.

In a separate bowl mix
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon Light Olive Oil

with a few drops of Vanilla Extract
(not too many since it will darken the color of the sugar)

Pack the Coffee Mixture into a little over 3/4 of the Irish Coffee Mug
(we got ours at Dollar Tree)
then top with the Sugar "Whipped Cream" Mixture
and tie with a shamrock.

(Oh if I only had my parent's vintage Buena Vista Irish Coffee Glasses!)

  1. Very cute. And dare I give you a tip? (Who knew that could even happen?!) They do make clear/white vanilla. I use it in baking for the same reason--you don't want the color change that comes from traditional vanilla.

  2. Not a coffee drinker, but that looks wonderful!

  3. Rub-a-dub-dub! I need this for my tub!! "Slainte!" (cheers!)

  4. Cute idea! And I love the smell of coffee so I bet this scrub would be perfect for me, too.

  5. This is so awesome! I love Irish Coffee. I'm pinning this for later. I would love you to come to my St. Patty's Day link party and share your post. :)


  6. I love this recipe. I hope you will stop by and link up to my St. Patty's Day Project Parade.


  7. I have to admit when I saw the title I was thinking, ewww. I seriously dislike the taste of coffee, blech! But as I read further and saw it as a body scrub, now THAT I like. Yes, I'm odd. Can't stand the taste but love the smell. Perfect party favor! Love it!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I am thrilled for each one!
